    in devon i had the best ice creams ever. a sandcastle which was ice cream covered with lemon sherbert. and a bomb which was a couple of scoops of ice cream, with whippy ice cream around it, with a fizzy lace on it too. yummmm.
    This sounds amazingly childish, where in Devon?!

    it was never about costing 99p it was that the italian general of whatever times best soldiers were the 99 because there were 99 of them. The 99 just means the best





    according to a cadburys flake '99 packet a while ago... :moon:
    Ah had always wondered that thanks.

    But its still a travesty the rising price of ice cream.

    Mara? dondurmas? is awesome. I had it once in Turkey. It's like normal ice cream but really tough and stretchy, sounds crazy but it's great.
    Ha, I had the (mis)fortune to try that last year! I was like what is this stretchy abomination?! The advantage is that it melts more slowly, which was good in 40 degree heat!

    Witch's Hat! :woo:

    For those of you who don't know, this is an ice cream cone, filled with ice cream, with a rocket lolly shoved upside-down in to the top
    We used to call it a Popeye?! No idea.



    I'd have a birdsnest. (Mr whippy with bubblegum and sprinkles)

    In Ireland, corner shops sell 99's, and they;re so delicious, because the ice cream is all nice and creamy. Ice cream men over here sell a horrible version of ice cream, you can tell by the colour and thinness. I'd probably opt for a lemon ice.

    Ah, the whole "99 cone" debate - apparently there's a big argument as to where it started, but generally, the two biggest and best sourced arguments are that the idea started in Portobello here in Scotland, and that the particular ice cream was first sold here at 99 High Street. Hence the 99 ice cream. The second one is that it was inspired by the Italian first world war heroes (the "boys of 99", apparently).

    Regardless, it had no bearing on the price. Sadly, they can charge whatever they want. The bwastwads.

    Anyway, after asking the ice cream man if he had any maxibons and being told no, I have a bunch of money left, so I'm going to get an ice cream sandwich (complete with nougat wafer)



    and some amazing foam mushrooms with the change.

    CLEARLY a 99! If the machine has malfunctioned though or something awful like that, I'd consider a Solero or a classic Magnum. Or an orange ice lolly. MAN I love me some ice cream
